Roger Federer: “There will never be a rivalry like that between me and Rafael Nadal”

“For players like Rafa or me, being number 2 or number 5 isn’t life-changing. What is life-changing is being number 1, as both of us has in the past. Being among the favourites is not important, the important thing is to believe that you are ready to win.


There will never be a rivalry like ours. Not even that between Borg and McEnroe, despite their different personalities and one being left-handed and the other right-handed. Murray and Djokovic are very similar. Rafa and I are extreme opposites and that’s what the fans like so much. Our rivalry isn’t over, I’m sure it will be back, I miss it”, said Roger Federer.



  1. Hello there, You’ve done a fantastic job. I will certainly digg it and personally recommend to my friends. I am confident they’ll be benefited
    from this site.

  2. I can’t wait to see Rafa play!!!the men’s tournament is not the same without him!! He is such a great person and I feel so grateful just to be able to watch him play and see what a beautiful heat he has!!! We your fans love you!! I hope to get to the us open this year! Good luck and thanks for being you!!!!

  3. aww this is really so sweet! they define what rivals in sport should be: rivals on court, friends off court. and it’s not false, they’ve made it clear over and over again how much respect and admiration they have for each other

  4. They are so damn talented and eager to play tennis, no matter what tournament it is. Great champions of all time and every match among them have proven to be a sheer display of audacious and immaculate shots …never displayed any outburst.. no smacking of raquets over the ground .. no hard talk … merely a gesture of Scream “Vamos” or “Come on” love to hear that though….

  5. This is so sweet. This what makes Rafa and Roger such great champions. No outbursts or slapping of raquets or hitting on the chest just poise and calm. I am such a big fan of these two gentleman for what they are on and of the court. VAMOS to two geniune champions

  6. Sooooo true!!! 2 class acts for sure!! and by the way I remember the first time I watched the videos from the pic that they have there. Damn near died laughing!! I watch them on you tube to this day just to get a good laugh. They are both too cute!!

  7. Am I die-hard Rafa fan, come hell or high water, but am so sorry to see Fed lost today in Gastaad ……so humiliating for him.

  8. Your absolutely right Roger, no one compare the rivalry of you and Rafa…People are always waiting for that moment. Your both great and best of tennis. Love and respect always.

  9. Sin ninguna duda dos grandes del tinis mundial lo que dice Roger es verdad la mejor rivalidad es entre estos dos, aunque aparece otra la de Djokovic Nadal todos quieren ganarle a Nadal…………………………………………..arriba Rafa que tu eres el mejor.
